this day has never happened before so how can we stay on track?

8 we are curious

‘You must remain attentive in order to be able to receive.’*

‘To the loving eye, everything is real.’

I might try and focus on what’s important to me at the beginning of the day, but I find myself wandering the further I get into the day.

Here are two things I’ve been trying to keep focused with:

A loving eye – which changes everything I may see in the day – including compassion, kindness, gentleness, and patience.

The second thing is curiosity, which keeps me open to the new and unfamiliar.

Then imagination and goodness get a chance.
